From notes from Elizabeth Smith, ESmith@Montgomery.k12.ky.us:
I've located some info on James French. I remembered that I had seen it at
the Montgomery Co., KY library and found it in a notebook of genealogy
articles written by Harry W. Mills and published in the Mt. Sterling
Advocate. He wrote about this family several times, so I will try to
summarize what I found.
The immigrant ancestor of the family was a James French, who came to VA from
North of Ireland and became a big tobacco plantar in Prince William and
Stafford Counties. He died in 1743. Wife's name was Elizabeth & children
were William and Mary Ann.
William French was a soldier in colonial wars. He married Winifred Hall,
daughter of Stephen & Catherine (Leasure) Hall & their children were:
Elizabeth, Susanna, Mary (who married a Beatty), Margaret (who married John
Farrow of Culpeper Co., VA, JAMES (Yes, this is the guy we all want to know
about. He married Keziah Calloway--more on them later), William, Stephen,
and Keziah (who married Valentine Stone).
From the following:
I read somewhere that when this area was first being settled , in order to
encourage settlement and discourage Indian attacks , Twelve men, including
James French were given land to clear and inprove, providing they would
keep only a portion and sell the other to other settlers for a dollar. I
will try to look this up later. I think it was in In Search of Morgans
Station, by Harry Enoch. I will check.

more regarding the will of James French:
I ran across this tonite at the library maybe there is some connection to a post that I saw on the Prince William County, Virginia board which I will post at the end of this message.
No other Frenches are listed in the book.

I'm researching the following families from Prince William County, Virginia. I descend from William McCarty born possibly in Prince William County. His parents were Thaddeus McCarty and Sarah Elizabeth Richardson. Thaddeus McCarty was the son of Dennis McCarty and Sarah Ball. I would like to have any information about the family of William French. His will was probated in 1790 in Prince William County, Va. His
son Stephen French appears as exec. on several wills in Prince William County. William's children were James, Mary, Margareitt, Kezia, Elizabeth, Susannah, and Stephen French. Who were the parents of William French. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
